We’re going to say absolutely!! But this will depend on your budget of course. To be honest they range anywhere from £50 – £1000 so if you want to spend as little as possible then you absolutely can. But if you want to go high end, High Street then go for it!


YES! Of course you can, any seamstress will alter a dress for you. You will have to consider the costs as it can be upwards of around £70 for some alterations depending on what you need. So you need to consider this against the cost of the dress.


We think this is one perk of high street dress shopping, you can change your mind. You should have the same rights as you normally would buy clothes from a shop. If you change your mind about your dress or outfit and it’s within the return time policy. Then just simply return the dress or outfit as per the store’s terms and conditions

Why buy a high street wedding dress?

Apart from the obvious money saving reasons, we love how easy it is to Repurpose them. If you have opted for a plain white dress get some clothes dye and get creative and dye it another color. If you are super creative and love to do something new then grab that sewing machine and totally revamp the outfit. Or wear it as is on your anniversary.
